In reality, to live a happy life we need to know and practice very few skills

In reality, to live a happy life we need to know and practice very few skills.

That is all there is to it.

For example, every time we hit a tricky situation, if you and I could remember to say the serenity prayer, we could save ourselves a lot of pain.

Unfortunately, we don’t. We tend to bang our head against the brick walls sometimes.

Memorize this:

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

Use it when the situation calls for it.

Drop me a note know if it helped you from getting a bruised forehead.
